During the state's stay-at-home order, it turns out Kentuckians are spending a lot more money on alcohol.

Revenue from April shows that wine consumption taxes increased by 32 percent while revenue from distilled spirits was up by almost 20 percent according to the office of state budget director.

Beer sales, however, actually dipped with revenue down by six-and-a-half percent in April, compared to the same month last year.
